Bianca Cabrera’s Blind Tiger Society is a dapper, daring dance company based in the Bay Area that presents unusual, tenacious and alluring evenings of contemporary dance.
Blind Tiger boasts a dance argot built from Artistic Director Bianca Cabrera’s insatiable desire for performance that is palpable, visceral, wild and relatable. Cabrera promotes a strong, queer, Latina vision resulting in works that spark controversy and conversation. Blind Tiger Society is discipline and virtuosity running the contemporary dance gamut from graceful to gruesome, from refined to homespun. Unadulterated physical vocabulary matched with unpredictable partnering creates an atmosphere of adventure and potency. Blind Tiger’s repertoire is emotive and sensual while it’s virtuosic physicality is relevant and timely.
Bianca humbly honors a dance formality while waxing with a rebellious tongue. Thus, the work has become known for its ferocity, spectacle, and inventiveness that questions traditional venue, vocabulary and values. Blind Tiger Society does not place a hierarchy on expression and bounces willingly and easily from substance to spectacle. Blind Tiger Society recruits makers of dance, music, theater, sculpture, libations, food, fashion and fun as collaborators and accomplices.
